Jesus said, “All who want to come after me must . . . take up their cross, and follow me.” - Matthew 16:24 (CEB)
Jesus invites us to follow him. But I would much rather believe than follow; it’s easier. I can sit in the comfort of my study and believe all sorts of things: the Virgin Birth, walking on water, feeding the 5,000, the Crucifixion and Resurrection. No problem! I have no trouble...
How do my actions show others that I am following Christ?
for courage to follow Jesus into the world

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
